Dear Rush:

 

Dear Rush; you, 'The Round Mound of Sound Signifying Nothing', have finally crossed the line from harmless 'fun', to 'deadly reality'--the first 'deadly reality' breakout star, if you will. By urging your listeners to distrust media reports of a hurricane bearing down on the islands of the Caribbean, and then possibly the U. S., what happens is on your head; you can't blame President Obama for this one, it's all on you. Granted, the doomsday-ish news reports are full of hyperventilating reporters screaming disaster, and it still may turn in an unexpected direction, and turn out to be a non-event, but despite the cable news networks, including yours, by the way, freaking out, the other, just as likely event is that it turns out to be as bad as advertised, and makes a direct hit on, god forbid, the U. S. A.

 

And, because of your ignorant verbal ejaculations causing your listeners to 'not worry about it,' they will have stayed, and be listening to your broadcast as they make like Dorothy in "The Wizard Of Oz', and use their frequent flier miles up in 30 seconds, making an unplanned visit to Aunt Fallopian one state over. Now, I'm the last guy to ever accuse the media of under reporting a possible event, it seems to me they're rooting for the damn thing to cause as much damage as possible, so Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, and the rest of the talking heads can go there and report it into the dirt, but to say it's a hoax is like telling them to play Russian Roulette with five bullets in the gun. If the worst comes to pass, and it rivals New Orleans or Houston on the severity scale, I hope you can look yourself in the eye in the mirror, and not be sickened by what you've caused in the name of entertainment.
